Konad M21 - For Dexter.......



Okay, today we have a mani that is just for fun.....



Dexter is one of my favourite TV shows, I just love it. It is quirky, funny and just a bit different to other shows. I have been watching some of the re-runs on TV here in UK, they are showing it from season 1 to 3 in preparation for season 4 coming to the UK in the summer. While watching the very cool credits, and looking at the stark white/red designs of the DVD covers, I decided to do a konad in honor of our Dexter......so here it is.

For the base I used Misa Heaven White, 2 coats here, though three might have been better as it went a bit streaky looking. I then stamped the splash design from plate M21 and konad red, to show the splashes of blood Dexter loves so much ;o)

Here are the results, very Dexter, I'm sure you'll agree ;o)

Dexter is my favorite tv show! You did a great job! My sister and I are planning a Dexter post. One of us will do skittle nails to match the first season and the other will do blood spatter nails with a different technique since we don't have that plate.

I did end up doing a version of this myself and it turned out great! I had so many compliments and told everyone where I got the idea!

BabyD @ Polish and Powder said...

Piper: glad it got complimented, it is a fun one to do :)
